Fitzpatrick fetes members of Student Task Force

U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick recently recognized the 2020 high school graduates who participated in his Congressional Student Ambassador Task Force. In the final months of the school year, the task force moved their meeting platform to an online forum due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Congressional Student Ambassador Task Force was assembled at the beginning of the 2019 school year with the assistance of the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA). Over the 2019-2020 academic year, the students were tasked with addressing key issues facing the nation and finding solutions to these problems. Meetings would consist of open discussions, Q&A’s, and student presentations. Beyond the regularly scheduled meetings, the congressman organized and hosted a trip to Washington, D.C., where the students had the opportunity to sit on the House floor, visit FBI Headquarters and tour the capitol.
